The Curse is Gone

And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: ~Revelation 22:3

 

Revelation 21-22 provides us with a colorful glimpse of what life in Heaven and eternity will be like. Of the many wonderful things that we are told about life in eternity, we are told that that there will be no more curse. A curse is the pronouncement of evil and terrible trouble upon someone or something. This morning, rejoice in the coming prospect of a place where there will be no more curse.


There is the fallout of the curse.

When sin entered the world, the curse of sin came with it. For the world, the animal kingdom became one of fear and survival. The seasons brought weather extremes, including natural disasters that would bring frequent havoc. For mankind, it meant aging, disease, and ultimately death. Heartache and sorrow are the aftermath of Adam’s sin. The curse of sin defiled the perfection of creation.


There is the freedom from the curse.

After death and Hell are judged and condemned to the Lake of Fire for eternity, God will create a new Heaven and a new earth. In eternity, there will be no more sin, no more death, no more pain, no more sickness, no more sorrow, and no more curse. Troubles will be over. Heartaches will be ended. Hatred will no longer be present. The curse will be overthrown and removed. How wonderful it will be to have our glorified bodies and dwell in Heaven worshiping God for all of eternity. Only then will there be the freedom from the curse.


There is the fate of the curse.

In the midst of Heaven is the throne of God and of the Lamb. All the redeemed through the ages will be serving God for all of eternity. God reigns supreme. There will never be a need for another sacrifice for sin. The Lamb of God Who took away our sin reigns victorious! There will be no possibility of the curse returning. There will be no place for the curse in the glory of the new Heaven and earth. The curse will be behind us. The curse will be defeated. The curse will be forgotten. Hallelujah!


Lastly, we are reminded to be faithful in spite of the curse. Keep the commandments of God. Keep serving the Lord with diligence and fervency. Look diligently for the coming of the Lord. Remember the words of Paul when he said, “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”


Rejoice this morning that the curse will be no more! Rejoice in the prospect of a new Heaven and new earth where our God reigns supremely! Rejoice in the prospect of serving the Lord for all of eternity!


Have a blessed God Morning!
